    Found these at a little antique store for $2 each. They need cleaning, but are in pretty good shape. Think I'll take the centers and applique them to some muslin to support and work into wall hangings. The triangles had a little stamp on the back that said made by OMA.

    "Oma" is what my grands call their Dutch grandmother. What a treasure to find!

    just lovely. the binding looks new, so i'd guess that the patchwork one was once bigger and got cut down and rebound. some people just don't know what they have.

    How sad that Oma's family gave that up. And how wonderful that it found a home with someone who will love it. Great find!

    Nope, that wouldn't happen at my house. I love cats, but I have three large dogs that look at cats as either playthings or snacks.! LOL

    Grusmama (sp?) is German for grandma. My DD's MIL is German, and the kids called their grandmother Grusmommy and my grandson is learning to say it too.

    I love your find! Also love the blue crazy the best. The pieces of doily cut up and used as fabric is lovely. What a great idea!
